PHILADELPHIA (July 12, 2017) — The Center City District Foundation (CCDF) and Chaddsford Winery have partnered to present downtown Philadelphia's newest summer pop-up, the Wine Garden at Collins Park. Conveniently located, for workers and residents, at 1707 Chestnut Street, the Wine Garden at Collins Park will be open for eight consecutive Fridays, beginning Friday, July 14, and continuing through Friday, September 1, from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., offering Chaddsford wines and hard cider, by the glass ($5 to $9), or by the bottle ($10.49 to $21.99). Buy three bottles and save 10%!

Collins Park, a green oasis with a picturesque fountain, set within Center City's bustling business district, is the perfect place to spend a relaxing time with friends or that special person. This hidden gem, named for landscape designer John F. Collins, has the intimate look and feel of a private garden. The Wine Garden at Collins Park will help support the Center City District Foundation (CCDF), which owns and maintains the park for public enjoyment.

“We invite everyone to come, unwind with friends, and begin the weekend with a glass of wine in our beautiful Collins Park,” said Nancy A. Goldenberg, Executive Director of the CCDF.

Chaddsford Winery, located in Pennsylvania's Brandywine Valley, is among the oldest and most acclaimed wineries in the state, producing over 30,000 cases annually. Chaddsford Winery also partners with the Center City District for Pairings on the Parkway, an outdoor summer concert series each Thursday at Sister Cities Park (18th Street & Benjamin Franklin Parkway).
